View Full Version : So what types did you fly?

5th Oct 2001, 23:02
Seeing that, sex, politics and religion is banned, I suppose we could talk about airplanes, as farfetched as that seems. Actually, was thinking about this, since someone mentioned they had a model of all the airplanes they had flown, well, I was just trying to figure out, how much that would cost me, but to do that, I had to figure out what all I had flown.

Not that I think I have a lot, secondly, would be kind of interesting to see what fellow Ppruners had flown, who knows, we might have a Brabazon pilot amomgst us.

Anyway, to bore you all to tears, here goes:

Cessna: 150,152,172,172RG,182,182RG,210,310,337,402,404,414,441, Citationjet.
Piper: Cub, Tomahawk,140,180,Comanche,Arrow,Lance, Saratoga,Seminole,Seneca,Navajo
Mooney:20C, 20K. Bellanca Viking. Beechcraft A-36, Skipper.Christen Eagle.KitFox.Stearman. Grumman AA-5, another Grumman that looked like a Cessna, Learjet 23,24,25. DC-8, series 50 and 60. A320.

Favorite would be the DC8 and the least favorite would be the Hershey winged Pipers.

Hmmm just noticed something, why are so many aircraft named after Native American Tribes or Chiefs?.hmmm?
Bit like all the early Shadows numbers, strange that, don't you think?, hmm?. ;)

Hogwash you diferentiated between the DC3 pre-war and C47 (army) and R4D (navy) and Dakota (RAF?) but weren't they all basicaly the same?
The Super 3 (Navy) was different in that it had the enclosed wheel wells extended fin, larger wright Cyclone engines and Radar.
Forgot my seaplanes LA4 and LA8

tony draper
7th Oct 2001, 04:14
Negative Mr P,the pre war DC3's ashtrays didn't fold into the panel when not in use, and it had a black bakerlite knob on the gear lever.
People often make this mistake.

I'm intrigued by the grammar of the question as posed - "What all did you fly".

I assume this is English as she is spoken by our colonial cousins? :confused:

Sorry - not being grammar police here - it's just been getting to me each time I've seen the thread title in the list, and each time I've thought "I've never flown an all" ;)

Beech sundowner, Beech F33, Beech B36, Beech B58, Fuji-200, Grumman AG5B, Piper Seminole, TB-20, and the Fokker 70.

I have never flown a Cessna though.... Not even a High-wing aircraft. I think I'm an exception.

8th Oct 2001, 06:12

My sincerest apologies for not being completely clear and grammatically correct. As you can see, I have taken the liberty of changing the topicline, to reflect ,perhaps, a more appropriate statement.

(Gee, talk about a stiff upper lip, after all, this is jetblast not Harvard)

8th Oct 2001, 06:25
No problems, Mr. D8! :)

Harvard? Do they speak English there? I had understood that Harvard was some sort of training school for accountants... :D

8th Oct 2001, 07:15
How about Oxford then, I suppose they speak english there, that is unless the empire is completely gone.

8th Oct 2001, 11:09

Sorry to have taken so long to reply. The DC3 was a pure Pax aircraft with an airstair door on the stbd side. All others like the C47 have been civilianized as their documents will show. One example of this is that the CAA after the war made the civil opperators of C47s lock out the second stage of the superchargers.

I have only seen one true DC3 which came through E Africa many years ago - owned and opperated by a guy called Ben Drew.

However let me say, that with regard to my post, that I was being a bit pedantic!! ;)

8th Oct 2001, 11:21
Oxford, ain't that the place where they make those dictionaries?


8th Oct 2001, 14:37
some very impressive lists here - puts me in my place. Anyway, fwiw:

Sedgeberg, Venture motor glider.


Hairy Plains:
Chipmunk, Bulldog, Tomahawk, 150, 152, 172, Cherokee 140, Warrior, Rockwell 112A, C208 grand caravan, Seneca 2 and 3, Twin Commanche, Duchess and Aztec.

Fave: probably the 208, though I love the Aztecs too.

Least fave: probably the 150, handles lovely but too cramped.

8th Oct 2001, 14:53
Thanks Hogwash, I do believe that was what they called the Douglas SkySleeper. Ok I have to delete that one, only flew the militarised versions. But... if we are going to include jumped out of I could add DH Dragon, DH Rapide, Beaver, Otter, Wessex 5, Sikorsky, Hiller.
No Tony sorry, I think you confuse that handle with the bakerlite handle that was on StingRay on the blow ballast tanks doodad. The folding ashtrays were always just to the left but left folded up during program hours so as not to send the wrong message about smoking to minors. Troy only smoked when the Marina song was on and he was out of sight.
Oxford.. Dictionary, possibley.

8th Oct 2001, 19:05
Jumped from as well, is it?

OK -
BN2, Cherokee 6, C206, Turbine Porter

Let's also add get winched out by:- :D

8th Oct 2001, 21:28
Wiched out of you say, well then... er none.

Although the word has reminded me I did forget the Thruxton Jackeroo, you damned nearly had to be winched out of the back of that if the chap you were jumping with was anything less than svelte.

Mines a very short list in comparison to some here but we all have to start somewhere...

Flashy, is it true that a '26 can outrun a P-51 at altitude? Are the high blowers still operational on yours? The Turbo beaver must be nice on amphibs. I only ever flew it on wheel/skis. Beats the livin' s**t out of the DC-3 in the slush, I can tell you.

Evidence of a lifetime wasted in GA. All the sorts of things you'd expect an instructor to have flown. Also the usual assortment of types in which one attempts to dodge rocks, clouds and sudden death in PNG. One or two types used to spot marijuana plantations on Police charters, a couple of types that were simple ferry jobs - and one midnight repo job... now, THAT was living dangerously but, what can I tell ya?

Hey Pigboat.
Yes the A26 cCOULD outrun the P51 at altitude.Our VNE before installation of the fire bombing tank was 425mph 0r 380knots.
The controls are rockhard at that speed in a dive and my biggest worry is hitting a bird.
All of ours have the blowers lockwired in low......you would'nt get off the ground in high.

Ran the usual gamut of light singles and twins on my way to the Slowtation but my weirdest one had to be the Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer.

Uglier than a Shorts 330/360 it didn't so much rotate as levitate.

Luvvit :D

As an ATC cadet with minimal "hands on":
Chipmunk, Piston Provost, Tiger Moth, Vampire.

Sandbagging with mates, with lots of "hands on":
F4 Phantom, CF5, CF18, F16, Tiger Moth, Meteor, T-33, Cessna 150, Kiowa, Gazelle (as part of Harrier lead-in training).

Actually flown as part of Job:
Jet Provost 3 & 4, Gnat, Hawk, Hunter (various), CF104 Starfighter, Jaguar, Harrier 3 & 4, Sea Harrier (thanks for the auth for the trips Soapy), Grob tutor.

Favourites? Starfighter (a bit like driving a TR3 in the wet), and Jaguar (only ever maligned by people who have never flown it)!!!

Float planes:

Ah yes, forgot to specify:

DHC-6-300 Twin Otter on floats. (Challenging)
Twin-Bee. (Twin version of Sea-Bee)
C-180 and C-185 on floats.
J-3-Cub on floats.

Nice crafts, more "fun" than big jets, but pay and days off don't quite compare. :(

Same with taildraggers, low pay and long hours, and it don't pay the mortage and the SUV bills.
How do we change that??? :confused:
